Xaverian Scholarship & Bursary Fund

The Xaverian Scholarship and Bursary Fund was established to make a StFX educational experience available to academically engaged students from across Canada and around the world regardless of their financial background. 

The creation of the Xaverian Scholarship and Bursary Fund in 2014 has opened the doors so the most community-minded, academically focused, and ambitious students can attend StFX - regardless of their financial status.

Students at the Xaverian Welcome

Named Endowment

The average Canadian university student graduates with $28,000 in student debt. Even with student loans and family assistance, students often need to find other ways to supplement the costs of their education, causing financial stress. The Xaverian Fund was established in 2014 to alleviate this need.

At StFX, it’s our goal to never turn away a student because of their economic situation. Your support helps ensure that this never happens. One of the most meaningful ways to support StFX and its students is to set up a Named Endowment in the form of a scholarship or a bursary. 

To learn more about how to set up a named endowment, please contact Rachel Pink or Alexis MacDonald.
